BEATLES legends John Lennon and George Harrison were  commemorated with a blue plaque unveiling .

The event was held at 94 Baker Street, London, the site of the now dissolved  Apple Boutique clothing store.

In the 1960s it was owned by Apple Corps Ltd, a company formed by the  band.

A previous plaque to John Lennon was already there, but has now been updated  to also remember his band mate Harrison, who died in 2001.

The plaque was unveiled by Rod Davis, the banjo player in Lennon’s first  band, The Quarrymen.

The event had been organised by The Heritage Foundation, whose president is  former Allo Allo star Vicki Michelle.

The Heritage Foundation evolved from Comic Heritage and has been in its  current form since the turn of the millennium. Its aim is to pay tribute to  British talent who have either “brought or continue to bring pleasure and joy to  millions of people worldwide, through their performances or technical skills in  entertainment and sport”.

A number of commemorative events are held throughout the year while raising  money for good causes through its charity ‘The Arts and Entertainment Charitable  Trust’.
